The author among large hewn stones thrown down during the destruction of the Temple in 70 C.E.

“Do you see these great buildings? By no means will a stone be left here upon a stone and not be thrown down.” – Mark 13: 2

Jesus said that if his disciples would not bear witness, “the stones would cry out” (Luke 19:40). In a sense, the stones do cry out! Archeological work across the Bible lands has lent dramatic support to Biblical claims.

I have a lifelong interest in the archeology of the Bible. This blog began as a personal study project to accompany our weekly Bible reading schedule. As I read the assigned portion for the week, I also research the geography and archeology of the area as it relates to the Bible reading. I was amazed at just how often archeology has illuminated our understanding of the Bible account. There is a myth that archeology has had little to tell us about Biblical history or even that it has proven the Bible to be false. On the contrary, time and again archeology has demonstrated the reliability of the Bible record.
